Several of our November poems have included both our word (AWNING) and our theme (LEAVES), mine included. But so far we’ve had few efforts that seem focused on the theme itself. So don’t overlook your opportunity to post a second poem each month!
The idea of adding a monthly theme is to remind us that editors, teachers, and librarians usually prefer collections on a specific subject. It’s good training to exercise each month by choosing a theme suggested by one of us and working on poems that follow it.
